IIRC, Machine mode in RISC-V is just looking similar to SMM in x86.
But it can do more than what SMM does. It helps to enclave-based
solution. I'm looking forward to see the open solution, e.g: Sanctum,
Keystone, etc to land into production environment.

btw: can't agree w/ you more about we need more open implementation
than Hifive unleashed.
